INDIANAPOLIS -- The music of Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker" is well known during the holidays, and this year the Indianapolis Ballet found a new way to share their performance with kids at Riley Hospital for Children. 

The performance comes to life on the stage the Old National Centre at the Murat Theatre, with hundreds of people attending each year. 

"I've been doing the show since I was eight years old," said Colleen. "It gets us into the holiday spirit."

But for the first time this year, the ballet's annual performance was shared online with kids at Riley Hospital who can't leave to see the fantastic show. 

"I recently went to their luncheon and I asked what can we do to make a difference," said Indianapolis Ballet's artistic director Victoria Lyras. "Even though they may not be able to leave the hospital just yet - this will be a moment to escape and enjoy the holidays with their families."
